Susie Lofton, a vocalist that has been lauded to possess a voice that is sweet, soulful and power-packed comes from a long line of studio projects and live performances including the progressive rock band Spyder Monkey, a punk duo entitled The Sun and the Sea to her current and longest collaboration, The Sweet Maries, an Americana & Gospel duo.
The Susie Lofton Group brings deep and soulful music experiences to the audience, by performing both contemporary and classic music selections that connect, inspire and entertain.
